Self Support: Where Money and Spirituality Mix

“Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.” (Tradition 7)


GSO on-line Contributions

Area 11 on-line Contributions

For those interested in mailing a contribution. (Refer to Seventh Tradition Mailing Addresses table).


Some District Contributions are already setup on-line.

Perhaps group members may wish to contribute directly to the group and then the Group’s Treasurer can create the ability to contribute directly to their District. Click here for some G.S.O. insights.



Tradition 7 (Long Form)

“The A.A. groups themselves ought to be fully supported by the voluntary contributions of their own members. We think that each group should soon achieve this ideal; that any public solicitation of funds using the name of Alcoholics Anonymous is highly dangerous, whether by groups, clubs, hospitals, or other outside agencies; that acceptance of large gifts from any source, or of contributions carrying any obligation whatever, is unwise. Then too, we view with much concern those A.A. treasuries which continue, beyond prudent reserves, to accumulate funds for no stated A.A. purpose. Experience has often warned us that nothing can so surely destroy our spiritual heritage as futile disputes over property, money, and authority.”
